Orchestra Miami Presents THE ROAD OF PROMISE
Raising the public’s awareness to Hitler’s persecution of the Jews in 1937, the musical masterpiece is set in a synagogue where Jews hide as a pogrom rages outside. TWO SHOWS ONLY!.
Join Orchestra Miami for a rare opportunity to hear a lost musical masterpiece!
Only the second time that this incredible masterwork will be performed professionally — outside of its Carnegie Hall premiere in 2015 — Orchestra Miami presents Kurt Weill’s rarely-heard oratorio The Road of Promise at Temple Emanu-El on Miami Beach.
Conceived as a method of raising the American public’s awareness to Hitler’s persecution of the Jews in 1937, The Road of Promise is set in a synagogue where Jews hide as a pogrom rages outside. The story combines Biblical & pre-World War II Jewish history, set to Weill’s unique and unforgettable musical language, with influences of cantorial lamentations, classical fugues and showtunes.

Saturday, February 4th at 8 p.m.

The Road of Promise cast features stars from the Metropolitan Opera and a combined choir of over 100 voices. The cast is led by internationally renowned tenor Allan Glassman in the role of the Rabbi. A regular at The Metropolitan Opera, Mr. Glassman triumphed as Herod in Strauss’ Salome and has since been heard in more than twelve different productions there.
The Road of Promise is a part of Orchestra Miami’s Discover Miami Through Music series, which brings appropriately themed concerts to Miami’s landmarks and places of historic interest so that we can learn more about our city, and each other, through music. With its impressive & eclectic Byzantine & Moorish architecture and copper dome, Temple Emanu-El is widely considered to be one of the most beautiful synagogues in the US.
